Marriott’s Autograph Collection will be adding the Davenport Hotel Collection in Washington State to its portfolio by the end of 2014.
The Davenport Hotel Collection consists of four hotels in Spokane –
The Davenport Tower is located across the street from the famed Davenport Hotel, Hotel Lusso is near Riverfront Park, and the Grand Hotel Spokane will be connected to Spokane’s new Convention Center.
Not yet on Marriott’s website, I went directly to the Davenport Hotel websites to find out what prices were currently like.
Using a sample date of Saturday November 15, 2014 the Davenport Hotel’s best available rate came to $155
A Tower King room at the Davenport Tower Hotel came to $145
The best available rate for Hotel Lusso for the same date came to $119
The Davenport Hotel is a landmark property that first opened in 1914 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was the first hotel in the US to have a central vacuum system, air conditioning (in common areas), a pipe organ and housekeeping carts. Shut down in 1985, it was bought in 2000 and went through a multimillion dollar renovation that paid careful attention to the hand painted frescoes and ornate woodwork.
Here’s a list of some of the famous guests who have stayed at the Davenport Hotel –
John Philip Sousa
John F. Kennedy
Cuba Gooding Jr.
Huey Lewis & The News
Sandra Day O’Connor
Samuel L Jackson
Harry Connick Jr.
